I saw this on another site and figured to give it a try here at R4W. Pics are nice but not required. Tell us what you have done to your RAV4 today!

I'll start off first... I saw cat foot prints on my hood today. Decided I need to wash it this weekend.

I just got back from the gym and removed the Radar Detector hardwire and Mirror Mount... Along with my E-ZPASS and garage door remote... Going to go shower and probably sell it back to Toyota later. I seriously feel like throwing up now. Also made a complaint to the FTC last night and emailed Mr. Manfredi himself, who owns almost all the dealerships in my city.
How did you hardwire your Radar Detector?
Today I had the Rav looked over by a Toyota adjuster/used car guy, and he gave me a firm offer of 14.5 -_-. I went back to my local used car dealer that already knows my story and they offered to help me out by putting my car up for sale in their lot. Then see how much it can sell for, so of course afterwards, they will take their cut and I take mine. *crosses fingers*

Wire it to sunroof harness
****. Go figure. I am trying to figure it out since I dont have a sunroof
Also removed the factory cloth and installed leather. Man that whole procedure was a pain in the anus, I'll never again attempt such an installation myself! I only finished the 2nd row, I'll finish the front when my seat heaters arrive in the next week. I think the front seats will be much easier though, am I right? I also used cable ties instead of hog rings, that saved my alot of time! Anyways, that's what I did today.

You should post pictures when your done. It would be nice to see how you done it too
Gave it a bath. It needs a good wax but that is going to have to wait another 3 weeks till I get this sling off. It sucks only having one arm. Oh and also cleaned the floor mat (still have carpet ones) and cleaned seats
All done and before the Patriots game.

Passenger side...

Driver side...

Hood ...

Your paint looks amazing. You have to tell us your secrets. Like do a DYI on your detailing work
Gave her a bath Yes. Started to wax today, but then I noticed I don't have enough wax. Will have to get some more. Oh and I also removed the dealership advertising and the "Toyota" badge next to Rav4
Nice job on the dealer badge removal! I don't know why they assume they can use us for their advertising? F*** them!

I like the fact of it not being there anymore. Will make cleaning alot easier since there is only the other 2 there. Just need to polish and wax it really good right there now. Does anyone have any good suggestions on polish and wax? I know Seriousblack has an awesome shine but I don't remember what he uses
